How'd He Get Here?: He's a local kid from an Orange family. Scott Shafer came in with an early offer, and Barrett became the second commit of his class, after the eternally-almost-Orangeman Myles Davis. Syracuse was his only offer, but he had interest from Akron (natch) and Penn State.

"Ever since I was little my dream was to play in the Carrier Dome," he said. "It’s the right place for me."

Links of Wonder: on Barrett's commitment to SU.

What Does Marrone Think?: I don't know, why don't you ask him?

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Ben's dad J. Patrick Barrett is a Syracuse University trustee . Let's hope that Ben doesn't wake up and decide he wants to play quarterback one day...
